This is Adam 11, here to bring you the CLAW update!
February starts off with a bang at the ECCC in Seattle. CLAW is partaking for the first time, taking the Robotic Overlord and Flying Monkeys to the masses. Also watch for the Comic Critic, Turtledust Media, and Creator’s Edge Press while you’re there.
The Cartoonists League of Absurd Washingtonians has as part of its objectives the awarding of a scholarship to a student interested in learning the mystical art of sequential illustration. This scholarship will be at least a lowly $100, but might reach loftier sums of $200 or maybe even higher. Funds for the scholarship are gathered in the year prior, and all funds gathered are bestowed on the talented applicant the CLAW chooses. Update: The funds raised for the 2012 Scholarship reached $876.16. And it is potentially available to the student who best fills out this application. You must also be currently enrolled in an institution or have confirmation of enrollment. Application Deadline: MAY 15 2012. Application can be found here http://www.cartoonistsleague.org/scholarship/
